Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has committed suicide. He was 47.

Russell was found dead Monday night, hanging in his bedroom at his home on Mulholland Drive in L.A.

“He hung himself with no suicide note found,” Ed Winter of the L.A Coroner’s Office told Radar Online.

As of now, there are not further details on his suicide. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Taylor filed for divorce from Russell last month, claiming he had physically abused her, according to Radar.

Russell opened up to OK! just last month about his split from Taylor.

“We still love each other, but after going through counseling it has gotten to the point that the stress is just too much for both of us,” Russell told OK!.

Russell had already moved out of their house, but the door seemed to be open for reconciliation between the two.

He blamed the pressures of being on TV for the split.

“I want Taylor to be the biggest actress on TV, and I want to feel happy not being on TV!” Russell told OK!.

In the season 2 trailer for RHOBH , Taylor talks about the roller coaster season fans should anticipate.

The show airs Sept. 5 on Bravo.
